Galaxy S7 release date may come in early February

Samsung-Galaxy-S5-problems-Custom[1]The Galaxy S6 and S6 edge were announced on March 1st but released shortly before mid-April, but a new rumor says that the Galaxy S7 could be released as early as February (early), following a January announcement.

A specific reason for such an early announcement and release date haven’t been given, but Samsung could presumably follow this early launch (as it did with the Galaxy Note5’s August announcement instead of the usual September one at IFA) to get out ahead of its competition with a new smartphone that’ll allow consumers to purchase right away instead of killing the hype with a long waiting period.

HTC One A9 liveThe upcoming HTC One A9 (codenamed Aero) just keeps on leaking. A few hours ago we brought you leaked press renders showing all of its color versions, and now it’s time for a new image to feast your eyes upon.

New LG V10 teaser offers a glimpse of the device’s dual-screen

LG V10 3As you have probably heard, LG is planning to spice things up a little with the upcoming LG V10. What started out as a quirky and quite questionable dual screen phablet, has now passed through TENAA and appeared in a few leaks, more or less proving its existence.

But if there was any doubt left, LG’s new teaser for the product, definitively proves that the smartphone will be unveiled on October 1. The video itself doesn’t really offer too much info, nor does it give us a proper look and the V10. All we get is a glimpse of the second screen near the top of the unit, along with what looks to be a dual front camera setup. (more…)
